The ultimate guilt-free treat? These salad cakes are made with vegetables

(CNN)Imagine biting into a beautiful cake, but instead of a sugary rush you get the fresh flavors of celery, carrot and red cabbage.

“Salad cakes” — a new craze in Japan — offer exactly that experience.
Nagoya native Mitsuki Moriyasu, a cafe owner and food stylist, in 2015 invented what she calls the “Vegedeco Salad” (decorated vegetables) as a guilt-free alternative to traditional baked goods.
    “I think we need to stop and think again about our daily diet. In Japan, we are consuming too much sugar and too much wheat,” she says.
    “Without using sugar and wheat, I realized you can still have a fun and surprising experience eating a salad that is shaped like a cake.
    “Eating beautiful color energize and makes you smile. That’s our wish.”
